Recent guest reviews

A very enjoyable stay with a beautiful ocean room and Terrace. Appreciated the service we received. Enjoyed the atmosphere and meal in the Restaurant. Will certainly come again for our Wedding Anniversary.

Our room was amazing with ocean views. Breakfast was included and was your usual above average buffet with eggs to order. Check in was efficient and easy. Only let down was bar service in the lobby. Had a lovely seat facing ocean and had to leave due to private function. Only one person working at the bar at 5.30 pm. He was also a trainee. Took over half an hour to receive two drinks. I do believe the bar is not owned by hotel. Otherwise everything was perfect.

Have stayed here many times over the years. The location is beautiful, so close to the ocean and such a pretty view. Rooms are comfortable and airy with the large sliding doors to the balcony. Can't praise the staff enough consistently placing much importance on making guests feel special.

Staying for a conference and the welcome at reception was great. Room was spacious and comfortable. Bed was also comfortable. Bathroom well presented and very clean. Meeting room was well serviced and support team helpful. Lovely location by the ocean.

I have stayed many times and find the Novotel a relaxing hotel. It is in a fantastic location in Manly. The restaurants and bar area is comfortable and welcoming. The staff are always helpful. I will return.

What a great location !! right on the water and a short walk from the shops, excellent service from booking all the way through to check out. Breakfast was great and with the view too. Would stay here again in a heart beat.

The location is perfect for family holiday because close to the sea but the room was not satisfied. When I entered the room I was sneezing all the time because of the dust. So dusty. Luckily there were room services nearby so they helped me to cleaned it.

Had an Great stay at Novotel Manly with two very busy boys aged 12 and nine. We loved the roof pool and Spa with its amazing views. Rooms were wonderful , very spacious. had everything we needed . But the standout was the Staff, felt welcome from the moment we arrived. Welcome at the Resturant and Welcome in our room. So, So close to beautiful Manly Beach, Manly Ferries just down the road to travel to Circular Quay

This is a mixed Review. There were many goods things but also things that left me a bit sour. LOCATION There is nothing wrong with the location. Perfectly located across from the beach which would be it's main appeal. About a 10 min walk from the manly wharf and right near the main corso. Can't do wrong with the location. It's directly above a Japanese themed bar Daniel San which is great for drinks and food. They also have a dj on at night on Saturday nights. Great cafes and restaurants close. ROOM It was our wedding anniversary so I booked a delux ocean view room. For the price I paid a expected a bit more, considering I could get a room in the city cheaper and better. You are definitely paying for the view. It was a huge room. A little too big, it felt like furniture was missing. There was enough room for a whole another king bed. For the room size I don't know why it didn't have a lounge and small dining table? I think they need to review that. Bed was comfy. Large and pillows were good. Bathroom was OK. Bath was a little awkward to get into for the shower. Good pressure for the shower. My husband found the toilet annoying has he had to hold the toilet seat up as it kept going down. Huge balcony. We were on level 2 which had these balconies and other levels above only had a smaller balcony with some seats. Good views. No free Wi-Fi in the room. That was a downer. EXPERIENCE Check in was fine. The staff was friendly and helped us with a place to find lunch. We were there early so we dropped off our bags and came back. Came back for our keys, they said our bags were in our room already, but when we got in they weren't. Had to call reception to get them. They did give us complimentary bubbly sent to our room with a nice note for our anniversary which was a nice touch. We had an early night and get back to the room about 8.30 after dinner. Once back in our room all we could hear was loud music from a wedding directly below our room. Really bad acoustics. I tried to call reception twice with no answer. My husband had to go down to see what was happening. They did offer to move us but at that time of night we were not interested. I was more concerned being school holidays, I saw lots of families there and there would have been no way that children would have been able get to sleep. They did stop the music at 10pm, but by then the damage had been done. We were both a bit cranky. And I could actually still hear the music from the Japanese bar after the wedding stopped. OVERALL For the price we paid I expected a lot more. I think if I want a special night out I might stick to staying in the city. They need to make sure they inform guests if there is going to be a wedding on considering they called me a few days before to confirm and never mentioned about this. Im guessing being on a higher floor on the northern end would have been fine, but we were directly above the function room. I wouldn't bother with an ocean view room unless you plan on spending time on the balcony with drinks. They did have heaps of school holiday activities on which looked good for children. All in all, Just think about your needs and maybe request a room on a higher floor which would prob be better for acoustics. And just compare prices around.

Great place for a quick recharge by the beautiful Manly beach. Close to all Manly has to offer. Staff are extremely friendly and helpful. Would be happy to come back again with the family. Great breakfasts
